GREAT FALLS LEADER.
SATURDAYpIoBER 18, 1888. 1
A Promisiag Season.
X~eut`. s;tidn pomlss to be a very
busy one for the people of Great Falls
Alrady experts are in the field examin-l
ag the vast bodies of iron ore deposited
in the lands in the vicinity of Sand
Culee, and it is highly probable that ex
tresive Iron works will be established
heren ext seson.
The Belt Mountain railroad is by no
means abandoned. Next spring will see
men in the field at work on the construc
Son of this road to the Belt mountains.
The surveys have bea madeand will be
carefully examined darig the winter,
and as soon as spring fairly opens grad
res aid contractors will be at work. The
construction of the road is an assured
fact. It was promised to the smelting
company, and James J. Hill is a man who
always fulfills his promises. Four years
ago when he stated on the banks of the
Missorli near the Cataract dam, that he
would build a road hundreds of miles
through what was then an Indian reser
vation, people who heard it scarcely be
lieved it could be true; but every word
he mid at that time, and he talked rather
freely, every promise he made has been
kept, and you may write it down in your
note book that the season of 1880 will see
the Belt Mountain ralroad completed.
In addition to this, extensive improve
ments will be commenced upon the Black
Eagle Falls. The improvement of the
wter power at that point will necessi
tae the expenditure of a million dollars
exec , at work. The erecti
has become so co
that our porters almost fall to tie
ce-half of the buildings which are in
courii of erection.
On the fourth of March next the party
of progre and latelligenee will again
comenito pl oer. Already the belief In
the election of Harrison has caused a
rie in wool, and the next season will see
condepace fully restored. All of the
mn.ufactorlee in every section of the
countiy will be at work, and the wool
business will be rapidly pushed forward.
SThehlctions are that we shall have
a mild winter, and that the cattle busi
a will also be profitable. All this will
ted to make money plen.

Helena Record: The democratic cam

the last issue of a life. It is of a mad
bull dog chasing a dude up onto a hay

with his cigarette and finally sits down
on a hornet's nest on top of the stack. I
The bull dog waits below with open jaws I
to see what will happen. The compari
son is this: The dude represents Mr.
Clark. The bull dog is Sam Word. The
hay stack is the democratic nomination
for congress. The hornet's nest and the
hay on fire are the lead and wool ques
Mr. W. H. Black has been nominated
for joint representative of Choteau and
Cascade counties. Mr. Black ran for
sherif of Chotean county two years ago
and received one of the largest votes
given a republican in that then demo
cratic county. His record as sheriff of
Choteau county is considered first-class
by the citizens of the county. He has In
terests at Choteau as well as at Fort Ben
ton, being an extensive sheep owner.
Mr. Black is very popular in his own
county, and will undoubted take his seat
in the next legislature.
As an example of the civil service re
form measures of Grover Cleveland, Mr.
B. F. Hackman, a life-long democrat em
ployed in the government printing office,
a few days ago wrote a letter reflect
ing on Cleveland's administration and the
very next day he was notified that his
services were no longe required.
Another example of Grover Cleveland's,
a man who was selected on civil service
reformnticket, is to be found in the levy
's four per cent assessment on fed
eao in Pittsburg, in violation of
the Ia as well as of every principle of
vil service reform.

THE NORTHERN PACIFIC. W
As heretofore stated, the Northern Pa
cific railroad made one million dollars
out of the travel to and from the National
Park last season. The travel to the beau- di
tiful falls of the Missouri river and the f1
Giant fountain would in a short time re- bi
suit in large returns. In addition to this P'
the freighting of coal, iron, silver and "
lead ore, besides the vast amount of stock
transportation, is sufficient in itself to b
ewarrant the building of a branch of the m
Northern Pacific to this point. Let it ti

HON. THOS. H. CARTER.
What They Say About Our Next Del
Hon. Thos. H. Carter, the republican
nominee for delegate to congress, is not
so well known in western Montana and
southern Montana as his democratic an
tagonist. His unanimous and enthusias
tic nomination by the territorial republi
can convention, on the 17th, is an evi
dence that the republicans of Montana
have an abiding faith in Mr. Carter's abil
ity to conduct an aggressive, an honor
able, and, perhaps, victorious campaign.
The latter is simply the qualified reitera
tion of a republioan prediction. Mr. Car
ter is a lawyer, standing high in the legal
profession. It is true he-le not an "old
timer," but he has.beea a resident of
Montana sufficiently long to become iden
tified with our interests:: He came to the
territory six or seven years ago, and the
eminence he has risen tWin the legal pro
fession is an acknowl.d geient of his tal
eant and ability. As a-ptile speaker he
is the peer of any in Msi1tina. He will
be heard everywhere before the cam
paign is over and the people can judge
him by his utterances. The republicans
think that in Mr. Carter they have nom
inated a November winner.--Dillon Tri
The nomination of Thos. H. Carter, of
Helena, for the territorial delegateship is
a good one. Mr. Carter has been in the
territory since 1883 and is an able and
ready lawyer. He has a large and influ
ential practice and is regarded as an up
right and conscientious man. His ability
as a speaker is well known, as he has
spoken in nearly every town in the terrl
tory, having always been man,0gp mem
ber in the republican 'ank . .
nation of such a a an, Who will .eater
campaign on his own merits and tle
strength of the principles Which he rep
resents, is a credit to the republieIla party
of Montana. We think that no free4hlplk
nlg and unpredji.iled man after listen
ing to one of Tom Carter'stalflf sleeches,
which teem with facts and carry with
them the weight of personal conviction,
can doubt for a moment but that the in
terests of Montana would be well repre
sented and vigorously pushed forward
with such a man to represent them in
Murdered Anna Lundstrum.
The proof of the aphorism that "mur
der *111 out" has been exemplillsd
finding the mutilated and decomposed
body of Anna Lundstrum in a deserted
prospect hole-a lonely place in the
mountains near Helena.
'The retention of Bryson, to whom the
bloody finger of suspicion points and
marks with the brand of Cain, has been
timely. His stoicism during the trial,
when he coolly, collectedly and carhfully
conducted his own defense, shows; that
he is one of those "stage 'illainu" whose
viciousness has not left its imprint upon
his countenance, and whose wonderful
Intrepidity, nerve and coolness is one of
human nature's phenomena.
The people here in Greet Falls have
been thoroughly seized with the convic- r
tion that the chain of circumstantial evi
dence is complete, and that Bryson knows
more than he deems it prudent to utter.
That the law ultimately will be vindi
cated, the death of poor' Anna Lund
strum revenged and Bryson hung is gen
